I do this too.

Each time I do my research, go through some tutorials, install some 
modules. Tell myself that scaffolding and ajax and ORMs are all the bees 
whiskers and I oughta know them.

A short while later I give up, go and deploy HTML::Mason and get some 
stuff done.

It's not very shiny, new or web 2.0.

But I loves it.
